We Just Don't Care

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS actually works. That's because it doesn't just try to convince people that abstinence is the cure-all, end-all solution to preventing the transmission of HIV, and that while they should try to remain abstinent, they should use a condom during sex just in case.

Which would explain why some faith-based groups are demanding the US cut its funding to the AIDS fund unless it takes steps to actually push faith-based programs that will likely use condoms for amusing balloon animals and nothing else.

This isn't the first time it has happened, either. I'm just a little bit sickened that there are religious fundamentalists who would view being "right" as superior to actually helping the sick.
